2018 Give It Up For Gulu 5k Run / Walk & Doggie Dash
September 22, Rockford Park, Wilmington DE
Join us to help the children of St. Catherine of Siena School in Northern Uganda.
This year, we continue to raise funds for the building of primary level classroom blocks, which will allow students to continue their education at St. Catherine's after kindergarten. Building expected to begin in December 2018.
The event takes place in Delaware's beautiful Rockford Park. The 100-year-old Rockford Tower is the centerpiece of this park, situated among rolling hills and vistas and offering beautiful views of the city.
This certified 5K course is challenging enough for the avid runner, and enjoyable for walkers and dogs as well!
Free race shirts are given to the first 200 registered in all categories.
Registration / Check In: 8:00am
5k Run / Walk: 9:00am
1 Mile Doggie Dash: 9:05am
Not up for a 5K competition with your doggie? Join us for a leisurely 1 mile walk around the park, with or without dogs.
Be a team captain
Working together in a group for a cause gives greater energy and support. You can represent a school, workplace, Church, family or a group of friends. Whichever you choose, it will be a lot of fun!
Teams choose their own names, create their own t-shirts and can even create their own fundraising event. Be creative and have fun! The team that brings in the most money or has the most members will be awarded a team prize.

More to come......
Once a year, we ship barrels full of useful items to St. Catherine of Siena School.
This year, we will be collecting new or gently worn children's clothing for ages 3yr - 10yr. A barrel will be available at the 5K event for your donations. The shipment of each barrel costs $200, let us know if you would like to sponsor the shipment of a barrel or contribute toward shipping.
